This is the place for you!
Company: Ambition Insight | Other publications include: CollegeCures.com
Title: Contributing Writer
Are you a student, recent graduate or writing professional who loves to write and wants to learn more about online media? Looking for an opportunity that doesn’t involve crazy bosses and coffee/lunch runs? Think you have what it takes to write for a website AND help it turn a profit? Ambition Insight wants you on the team!
LadyChoices.com, a recently created website featuring women’s health and relationship advice, fitness tips and more, is looking for a few hard-working, ambitious, and creative writers to write articles, market the site via social media, perform marketing tasks, and get a better understanding of what it takes to run a successful website.
This position is 2 days a week and starts as an unpaid internship for a brief trial period, but has the possibility of turning into a paid position if we find exactly what we are looking for in YOU!
If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and two related writing samples. Do not hesitate to send an email if you would like more information about the position before applying!
If you were to intern with us, the position would be considered “remote” meaning you could work from your own computer at home, school, or wherever you like to work. In order to get work done, we would be talking over the phone, through email, GChat, or Skype.
As for your assignments, they will range depending on your strengths as an intern and what you like to do best.
For instance, we would start you as a writer (if writing is what you are good at and enjoy most). After getting comfortable with blogging, we would allow you to keep writing, but would also invite you to complete other assignments such as social media tasks, working with advertisements/affiliates and performing minimal site maintenance (to name a few).
If you were to excel in any one of the aforementioned areas, we would further explore your talents unless you had any objection to the work.
